"You have cancer."
Three words you never want to hear. Imagine finding that out. Imagine living with it. Imagine knowing that there was a better way to treat your cancer but it was going to be at least four years before anything could be done.
Now, imagine knowing a way to bring that treatment to you or your loved one sooner. Imagine clinical trials that produce new treatments and better ways of caring for those with cancer.
By supporting ANZUP, you can make it happen.
So let's fight cancer below the belt!
The race to beat testicular, kidney, bladder and prostate cancer is on. Join the fight and ride with us on Tuesday 19 September 2017 at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek.

'Keep riding, spread the message and thank you for being part of the Pedalthon' Simon Clarke, Pedalthon Founder
The Pedalthon was founded to promote awareness of these common but 'less glamorous' cancers. In doing so, we will provide ANZUP with the critical funds they need to improve the lives of so many.
Through your support, the Pedalthon aspires to change how we view, act, respond and treat the below the belt - testicular, prostate, kidney and bladder cancers.
We can defeat these cancers - but only with your support!
LET'S FIGHT CANCER BELOW THE BELT!

ANZUP Cancer Trials Group Ltd
ANZUP performs non-industry-sponsored clinical trials in genitourinary tract cancers (prostate, kidney, bladder, testis). These cancers are common and you or someone you love have probably been touched by one of them. Better treatments are needed but resources to support these trials are scarce. Your donation, large or small, will go directly to support trials to improve outcomes for people with these cancers.
